Abstract/Citation: The Act widens the range of occupational pensions provision on a voluntary basis, especially at medium-size enterprises and low-income businesses. Through collective bargaining pension agreement higher level of care and acceptance among employees might be achieved.
Act focuses on improving tax and social security conditions for company pension schemes, introduces "pure contribution commitments" and so-called "option systems".
